Coffee Themed Care Packages 2

When I was in college, I had an obsession for coffee. As an adult, I still love coffee and drink about two cups every morning to get through the day. During my years as a college student, I remember using traditional 12 cup coffee makers in our rental home. When I moved onto campus, I didn’t have any coffee equipment in my dorm room. If I wanted coffee, I had to go out of my way to the nearest cafe to grab my cup of coffee and I paid a pretty penny for each cup. The expenses added up for a college student on a budget!

If you are thinking of the perfect “back-to-school” gift for the college student in your life, then consider creating a coffee themed care package for him or her this year. This is just one way you can bring a little bit of “home” to their dorm rooms while they are away from home. Your gift will help the college student avoid high coffee fees at cafes, too!

Coffee Accessories for Coffee Bar

College students these days have the luxury and convenience of using single cup coffee makers to quickly brew their coffee in the morning before heading to class. This fall, I’m sending one of our relatives a college themed care package to use in her dorm room. The contents and accessories will be the perfect addition to her Keurig® K200 Brewing System. The Keurig® K200 Brewing System, available at Walmart, is a college must-have! If your college student needs a pick me up each morning or during the day, a few simple coffee bar accessories will come in handy! Plus, you’ll be helping them save money by providing accessories and K-cups that will last a while!
